Product Description

In this game that consists of five dice and nothing else, play proceeds by rolling the five Cosmic Wimpout cubes and get points for each 5, 10, or Flash (triplet) that you roll. You can accumulate points towards the Winning Total by ending your turn or risking it all, because if you roll and don't score, you lose all the points for that turn and the next player goes. Sounds simple, until you add or make up more rules. This ever-changing game blends the interaction of chance and strategy. Whether you believe in statistics or the mystic, within moments you will experience great elation and crushing disappointment. Includes 5 dice, and instructions. For 2 or more players ages 5 and up.

I've been playing this great game since the 1970's when it was invented by students at the University of Massachusetts. Equally fun for any number of 2 or more players, this game has aspects of "Let's Make a Deal", in which you frequently must choose to take the points you've accumulated or bet them all to continue to rack up more. This makes for a lot of coaching and cajoling from other players, as the longer your turn the higher the stakes become.

Someone said the rules were hard to read and it's been so long I can't say ... but they ARE very simple. It's also one of the few games that encourages you to extend and change the rules, so long as everyone agrees, and doing so keeps it from getting boring over time.

It's a lot of fun with only five dice; very portable and I appreciate the fair pricing for the basic game given its simplicty. It's a lot of fun and highly recommended!

I've had this game since the mid-80's and my dice were finally so worn that it was hard to tell what some of the symbols were. So, I ordered these replacements, and they are wonderful. My 11 and 7 year old kids are hooked on this game, we play all weekend long on camping trips. They were super excited to see the new dice, they should give me another 20 years of fun! BTW, get your hands on a felt game board if you can, that's the way to play.

I prefer a game with a bit more depth or strategy, but found this one to be fun. Great for playing with friends who prefer a simple game. Easy to turn into a drinking game, if that's your thing.

For a game as simple as it is, learning it was a bit more confusing than I had expected. It helps to have someone there who has played it before. There are a lot of little rules that can take some time to get used to. The examples help, but there were some situations where ruling were unclear by the manual.

Once you get past that point, it's good quick fun. We've played with as many as 8 people and as little as 2, but I find 3-5 to be the optimum number of players... otherwise it can get a bit slow and boring waiting for your next turn, especially if people are easily distracted by other things. It is almost completely luck based, so there is the slight possibility of one person getting screwed completely for the entirety of the game, but that's just how these things go. In general, it ends up at least fairly closely matched.

All in all, definitely money well spent for the price paid. A good one to have in the game arsenal.

This is a wonderful game I discovered from a friend earlier this year. It's fun with a lot of people. The only problem is that the first time I played it, I learned how to play from someone else. When I bought this product, I attempted to understand the rules from the unclear instructions, and got a bit lost.

Otherwise, it's great. It's simple and fun.

Cosmic Wimpout is easy to learn, impossible to master, unless you are REALLY GOOD at telekinesis, which is permissible, according to the rules sheet.

It's a dice game, with some fancy-looking dice.

The gameplay is very similar to Farkel (aka 10,000) with some twists to the gameplay and a different scoring methodolgy.

I had thought this game was out of print, but was delighted to find it's still available.

Do you have a family of four or more that spends too much time on electronic devices and not enough time together? Well, capture the time while waiting for a meal at a restaurant by playing a very small and easy to carry dice game and enjoy the company of each other. This game is lovely for that.

This game is incredibly fun to play, the best dice game for family fun ever! Both luck and skill are required to win. The game is played with 5 specialized dice, so you need Cosmic Wimpout dice to play Cosmic Wimpout.
Players accumulate points by rolling the scoring 5's and 10's, and also by rolling triples of 2's, 3's, 4's or 6's. To make things more interesting there is 1 die with a wild "flaming sun" on it. Players set aside scoring dice and continue to roll the remaining dice until they get to a point they are allowed to stop or when they "wimpout" and lose all the points during that turn. Excitement really starts to build when the accumulated score within a turn builds and the rules force a player to continue rolling even if they would like to stop.
When playing with elementary aged children, they get a lot of addition and multiplication practice without realizing it as they tally their score for each turn.
Our family has enjoyed this game for about 15 years now, and we have taught it to many friends. The rules can be a bit confusing the first time around, but once one stumbles through a game or two it gets much easier. Really, you can't get more entertainment from such an economical game than this.

Cosmic Wimpout is fun to play, easy to learn, and never the same. Pull up a table, or play on the floor, All that's required is a pen, paper, and 30+ minutes of free time.
Anyone, and as many people as you want can play.
I suspect that anyone who does not find this game fun is most likely dead inside. Or dead. Or a zombie. (though the zombies might find it fun. throw this in your zombie emergency pack as a last resort distraction defense against the undead:)
For new players, the instructions are clear, and easy to remember.
HAVE FUN!

The game shipped in 2 days (even though the estimated shipping was 3-5 days)
